Tuesday Morning Sketch #37

Hi there! I'm going to make this a quick post...I have to finish the soup and serve it for supper. We're having Chicken Taco Soup and it is one of my favorites!
The challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week was to alter something. I love altering the Crystal Light containers, because they are easy to do and they are FREE! I am all about the bargain! I havn't tried altering one of the new oval shaped ones though....
The container is covered with American Crafts paper; I think it really looks Easter-ish. I just use a strip of double stick tape on each end of the paper and overlap the edges; super fast and easy. The bunny chick is colored with Crayolas and I added some Doodlebug glitter to the eggs. I used a round punch to punch the holes for the ribbon and just knotted the ends inside the cannister. I filled it with Easter grass and it's now ready for some little candies or perhaps a giftcard.

Adorable, I've covered them, but never added a handle, that is so smart. Real cute image on top, too. Perfect little Easter gift.
